Grove of Whispers - The Somnambulist [wh239]




Grove of Whispers, a dark ambient project of John Tocher, debuts on Webbed Hand with a long-form nightscape pervaded with haunted sounds.

About the album:
"Noise: unwanted sound. Distraction.

A barrier to sleep, or when used to mask annoying sounds, a veil making it possible.

It frequently induces the psychological phenomenon known as pareidolia, leading one to hear voices.

The Somnambulist: a mixture of various noise sources you might find in a nocturnal environment. A car on a rain drenched highway, the hiss of a television late at night, a shortwave radio in search of a signal. The mind is provoked. Will it find order among the chaos?" -- J. Tocher

Listen as needed to mask noise preventing sleep or interfering with studying. Adjust volume as appropriate.

Voices and ghost phenomenon provided by:

Bing Satellites
C.P. McDill
Disturbed Earth
Jeff Sampson

The Implicit Order

Grove of Whispers is John Tocher. John does the Sadayatana podcast and plays live several nights a week on Stillstream. He also releases dark and experimental music at Buddhist on Fire.

Cover adapted from a photo by BitJuice.

Recommended to play as you prepare to sleep, or even as you sleep. A darker alternative to the Rain series. Sweet dreams...
